Flexible conveyor systems allow you to relocate conveyor entry or egress positions by modifying conveyor sectors according to fluctuating needs during the workday. These expandable conveyor solutions are often used in e-commerce operations or loading docks where trailers are loaded and unloaded. One conveyor system can be set up to feed multiple dock doors.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are furnished with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in many capacities and widths, from minimal systems for less demanding use to heavy duty options adequate for applications in distribution centers and other intensive operations.
Although steel skate wheels are typical, these conveyors may also be configured in other materials like aluminum, plastic and stainless steel.
Steel skate wheels include many benefits and are a perfect choice for a wide variety of business uses from assembly lines to storage space. They are well suited for lightweight, flat-bottomed goods like boxes. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are also used for arced conveyor sections.
Gravity rollers are a better choice for heavier items, and can also convey irregular package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don't rotate as fast as separate skate wheels, so roller solutions can be put to use for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Loading docks are busy places that have many functions, from loading and unloading trailers to packing cases on delivery trucks. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the optimum way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.
In almost all modern warehouses, maximizing storage space is a dominant consideration. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be compactly folded, creating a far smaller storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.
Power conveyors can also improve ergonomic comfort and safety. By creating an unimpeded path between the trailers at your dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems create ergonomic benefits for your workers, minimize injuries, improve safety and enhance efficiency.
Roller conveyors are available in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They're fully height adjustable, permitting you to put them to use for different truck heights and applications. Featuring a payload spec of up to 100 lbs/ft, these conveyors are ideal for countless types of goods.
Powered options feature variable rates, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop controls are positioned on either end of the machine so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also outfitted with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily maneuvered but securely stationed in place when necessary.
Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of fields, including e-com, distribution centers, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, manufacturing, third-party logistics, parcel post and more.
